I manegen med Glenn Killing – Live från Berns



Title: I manegen med Glenn Killing – Live från Berns
Directed by:
Walter Söderlund
Written by:
Robert Gustafsson, Jonas Inde, Andres Lokko, Johan Rheborg, Henrik Schyffert
Year: 1994

This is a live performance which consists of the best parts of the television series with the same name. The series did not attract much attention, but in retrospect, after the creators had become famous through other series, it gained popularity. Though I have not watched the series in its entirety, it seems to me that this live show is several notched better.

I have watched this show so many times that I know parts of it by heart. However, before last week, it was many years since I watched and I only did so because I happened to make a reference to it talking with a friend, and it turned out that she had not seen it. Perhaps, it has lost some of its shimmer lent by nostalgia, but it is still among the best pieces of Swedish humour ever produced. This is mostly because all participants are brilliant (especially Robert Gustafsson) in their roles.

By way of recommendation, I think most people in Sweden know about this cadre of comedians and if you happen to like their other productions, the chance that you will enjoy this show is rather big.
